Happy Easter and Happy 3rd Birthday to Callum!

Happy Easter to everyone! Hope you all have a lovely day with your families and friends and eat lots of chocolate eggs!

Today is a double celebration in our house as it's our third child's 3rd Birthday! Wee Calpal as he's affectionately known has opened loads of pressies and cards and we have more family coming in the afternoon for roast beef and all the trimmings! He is a huge Star Wars fan but every supermarket in the vicinity has been sold out of Star Wars cakes all week so he admitted defeat and chose a football themed cake - black and white with football boots on!

The cake is quite fitting given that my crafty daughter has made Callum a birthday card - with a football theme! She picked some boys Smirk papers from my stash and some matching coloured card, some matting and layering - with help from myself - and some gold peel offs to finish the card and he loved it!

For my card for Callum, i've used the Kaiser Crafts Technologic 6.5" paper pack with a chipboard 3D robot embellishment from the same line. Some matting and layering onto a 6x6 Kraft Card blank and one of the pop out borders along the bottom. 

One of the papers is a repeat pattern using keyboard keys, so i've cut out the letter for his name and adhered these with 3d foam onto a die cut tag also from the paper pack. 

A silver '3' and some kraft Card Candi finish the card and he loved it!

Enjoy your weekend and the holidays if you have time off.... or your kids have!
Be back soon with my first DT project for Tsunami Rose Designs and this week's challenge entry - #13 Altered Journal!
